Upcoming events (1)
InDesign easily won the DTP wars of the early 21st century, so why do “other” layout programs still exist? Join Matt Sullivan, Adobe Certified Professional in InDesign, FrameMaker, and many other Adobe applications to confirm InDesign’s strengths, and point out where InDesign may not reign supreme. Takeaways. After this session you’ll: • Have a working familiarity with FrameMaker. • Understand that complete and total freedom in a layout tool isn’t always a good thing. • Have an appreciation for localization, structure, and the cost savings that come with consistency. • Know where InDesign went when it needed guidance for long document features and publishing. About the Presenter Matt Sullivan is the founder of Tech Comm Tools, an Adobe Authorized training resource. He holds Adobe Authorized Training certifications for over 10 different products, including everything in the Technical Communication Suite. He is a champion for mobile publishing, structured authoring, localization, and content experience. Matt has also been at the forefront of online course design, having developed seven different online courses, two of which are completely underwritten by Adobe. When not in front of a computer, you’ll find Matt at the beach, the mountains, or brightly dressed as a referee for his daughters’ soccer games.
